There's a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.
People asked if I could have played the Terminator. Are you kidding? Not a chance, I never could have played the Terminator.
We're all expendable. We think the world's going to stop when a pope dies, or a king. And then... life goes on.
When you're on top and you lead the parade, everyone's there throwing lilies and lilac water on your head. But when those parades have gone by and there's a storm in your heart, there are very few people that are going to sit there and listen to you bemoan life.
Now it really is, believe it or not, 90% of the films are green lit, not by the studio heads, but by the marketing department.
When I'm on a location, I pick a restaurant that's close and private and eat all my meals there.
I have a fear of heights that borders on mania.
My favorite snack would have to be Fritos, no doubt about it. Fritos and mayonnaise. I know. Really healthy, isn't it?
The phenomenal thing that happened to me is that I was able to create two memorable men: one is the ultimate optimist, Rocky, and then you have Rambo, the ultimate pessimist. You're going to always be remembered for them, no matter what you do.
Most action is based on redemption and revenge, and that's a formula. Moby Dick was formula. It's how you get to the conclusion that makes it interesting.
I have a lack of fear, whereas in the past the fear of failure was a powerful motivator. Anyway, I have great expectations for the future, but I just don't know if I'm the monarch of all I survey.
I think that's become passe, but if you can surround yourself with a kind of monument to yourself and your family - a statement - and you can afford it, then that's a noble project.
A lot of guys have muscles. A lot of strong men in this world. I think it's important to show that even under all this strength there's a fragile side, a side that can be affected.
I wish I had thought of Velcro muscles myself. I didn't have to go to the gym for all those years, all the hours wedded to the iron game, as we call it.
I'm always looking for a new challenge. There are a lot of mountains to climb out there. When I run out of mountains, I'll build a new one.
I have great expectations for the future, because the past was highly overrated.
There aren't a lot of opportunities for that rite of passage that makes you a man. War is one of them, and violent sports are another.
Rambo isn't violent. I see Rambo as a philanthropist.
People don't realize that when they 'throw out' their back, it's often because of weak abs. These muscles are essential for lower-back strength and good posture.
I never quite understood these actors - though I envy them sometimes - who can lie out for a year or two. I feel as though time is a real pressing issue, and I want to get as much work done in the time that I have left.
